Derek has been getting arrested from time to time since the shootings for things like speeding and reckless endangerment. Must be the adrenaline he gets from his current “life is short” mentality. The new ex-Chief wants to operate on a man who has a massive tumor surrounding his brain stem. In order to save this guy, Derek needs help from Callie and Mark. Basically, they need to split the patient’s entire face open. It’s all pretty darn raw.
Meredith worries that Derek is driving pretty fast without a seatbelt. She also hopes Cristina isn’t rushing into this wedding with Owen. Meredith further worries that she and Cristina are going to be the only two who don’t get cleared for surgery which could lead to a new career of selling Slushees at the multiplex.
